TRAVEL: The Joule Hotel Dallas

I’ll admit, that one of my favorite parts about traveling is the “home away from home” aspect. I am a big hotel junkie and get excited over super comfy white beds, pretty lobbies an an amazing pool. That being said, obviously not all hotels are able to make you feel at home in a totally foreign city or country. The Joule Hotel in Dallas, however, was simply perfect. It was the official partner hotel of the RewardStyle Conference, and we decided to stay there for all 5 nights in the city. Aside from the fact that breakfast at CBD Provisions, the hotel’s restaurant, was spot on (I can recommend the Ruben’s Granola or CBD omelet) and the beds that felt like you were sleeping on clouds, the interior is what got me the most. So different than most hotels I know from America and so stunning. I literally wanted to take every piece of furniture in the lobby home with me. Not to mention that rooftop pool, which was not only absolutely insta-perfect for pictures, but also super relaxing and the service there was so sweet! If you ever happen to be in Dallas, be sure to book a night or two at The Joule Hotel and check out their very own ahh weekend! for coffee and Ten Over Six for a unique shopping experience!

HOTEL REVIEW: Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara, Abu Dhabi

Even though I am currently in full-on Milano mode from fashion week, I still have some Abu Dhabi posts for you guys, so hopefully you won’t mind all the switching back and forth! After sharing our first stop in Abu Dhabi with you guys (read the full review HERE), of course I also wanted to write up a review of the second hotel we decided on. One area of the city that had me interested right from the start was the Mangroves National Park. Say what? A national park in the middle of a city like Abu Dhabi … meaning: in the desert?! Yes! And it is absolutely breathtaking. We stayed at the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara and I have to say, I really loved it!!

HOTEL REVIEW: Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi

For the first part of our stay in Abu Dhabi, we decided on the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, which is located across the canal from the stunning Sheikh Zayed Mosque. The second I saw the view on the hotel photos, I was sold. Plus, the entire hotel is styled in Arabic decor, which is something I wanted. Usually I prefer more modern interios, however, for Abu Dhabi, I thought the more traditional look was perfect. Greeted by dates and coffee, we immediately loved the place. Even more when we entered our room (we booked a deluxe room) and saw the private balcony and canal view – of course with the mosque in the background.

TRAVEL: K+K Hotel George London – Review

Time seems to fly these days, and I can’t believe it has already been over 2 weeks since we visited London with the family! I shared a huge travel diary over on The Daily Dose, but wanted to also write about the K+K Hotel George, where we stayed for the weekend in London. Over the past few years, I mainly book my hotels based on recommendations I find on other blogs. My main travel inspo is definitely the lovely Juliane from Style Shiver! I feel like we have the exact same taste when it comes to travelling and I’ve loved every single place that I tried after reading about them on her blog. Hopefully, some of you will find my personal recommendations just as helpful, so here it goes my hotel tip for London:
